BAPTISTISM 3/94 "ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth" a religion of gross self-deception and self-delusion, a religious cult brainwashed into believing its own lies conceitedly regarding itself as the elect, a privileged people with sole knowledge of the truth, while being as far away from the truth as east is from west a people who are prisoners to their own self-delusions and self-deceptions going to church two or three times a week to renew the brainwash, to freshen it up, to keep it from fading away What is its error? Its error lies in thinking that Christianity is a thing of the head instead of a thing of the heart, a matter of possessing the right dogma and doctrine rather than a matter of servitude, piety and practice. It is the error of thinking that being in possession of the directions to Timbuktu is the same thing as being in Timbuktu. It is the error of viewing salvation as something guaranteed by performance of a simple act --- rather than a thing dependent on the condition of the heart. It is the error of attempting to reduce salvation to a simple cut and dried formula. The animal says he is a lion, believes he is a lion. But he doesn't look like a lion, he doesn't roar like a lion, and he doesn't walk like a lion. He looks like an ass, brays like an ass, walks like an ass and kicks like an ass. So what is he?
